Maru's Graphic Dump
With a new thread comes the revamping of a sig request. I -really- didnt like the result of the last one, this one Im happier with
edit: Im gonna make the sig darker to match the avi =/
Congrats on second thread :D
The new set:
Pink sig, very pink XD
But nice though.
I`m guessing, the stuff over her head on the right, thats her legs? :P
It looks like legs at least hehe.
And yeah, you should darken the sig.
Right, well today is your turn.
Alright, so right off the bat, I will tell you that much like your last thread, you tend to follow the same trail with your signatures by saturating the colors as much as possible or making them monotone. The case here is that the colors are really bright with no corresponding darkness.
Second off, its monotone. Again, this is something you do a lot with a few exceptions. Monotone is hard nut to crack, so all I can really say is to using gradient maps with complementary colors.
All my other critique stuff is just the on the flow and the text being spread out, but those are just easy fixes and dont really matter of of now.
Oooh : ) Very pretty! [What a coincidence.. I'm listening to Poker Face =D] I like the way it's blended = )
Maru-chan I loooove your sig style *_*
I'm likin the darker sig much better then the first. And that av is smashin. And how you balance your images and text, and the blending, is awesome. Looking forward to seeing moar. =D
The editted version turned out great. The text you chose on the right, turned out great in this sig. I think the avi is a tad too sharpened, but I think it still works well for this set.
You better keep it alive!! -stare-
I like the way the last one came out. I'm not sure what it is, but I think it looks cool.
Great things you've got here! You're very talented!
I really like the sig below the avi and the one below it as well. The last one has an interesting spooky effect! (or was it supposed to be spooky? O_o?)
Jes it is ^w^

I never really liked how this one came out...
When I saw this sig in your blog I like nearly died, it was so awesome. Just all the effects you added and the way its composed is very beautiful. The retro look fits it so well and I would love to see the PSD for it. One of my favorite sigs you've ever done. Its absolutely stunning.
Yay, thankies :3
Disgaea signatures always make me smile. I love the expressions on the signature. I kinda think the stock placement is a little weird. I dunno if its just the stock thats over powering the right side though. The pentooling makes the signature flow very awesomely though.
Your signature is <3333. All the fun effects are sooooo woooshy and crazy. Everything about it looks really good and you put it together really well.
Beautiful stuff Maruuuu.
Heh, you always loved to mess with warm colors don't you?
Anyway, I do feel that this is a unique signature and it seems to have some fun elements in it.
Although the level of noise is really high, and it kind of bothers me.
But the typography is great, now just to make it a bit more clear next time.
Great works nonetheless.
Maybe more in the future?
I smiled wildly at that spoof avatar
Anyway, very nifty designs in the update!
Loving the colors a lot on the Buruku sig :3
The orange tint on the right side looks hawt and the brush usage is pretty crafty. Eye-popping designs btw
Although, perhaps add a bit more to the sharpness?
Nice - I love the Disgea set - the avvy is cute - her expression is adorable. ^^
I like the colors you used on the sig - they all go together very nicely. It's like she's hiding in the flowers, which is nice to draw the eyes in.
The colors and design in the second one are awesome, though the text is a little hard to see because of everything in the background. But the design is great! Nice update.
MaruDashi -- I really like the "Floral Rhapsody" set! the colors are bright, but not obnoxious -- they flow together nicely and they are very warm and pleasing to the eye. That's something I always try to achieve with my graphics as well.
I also love the image on this one, but the outlined text is a bit too hard to read unless you focus on it. The layers and colors look awesome, though. It is very well done.
I like how you did the background in the first newest signature, but I have seen better from you. I am kinda disappointed to be honest with your newest ones and lately your work has been very oversharpened since the lady gaga signature, but when you are busy, you lose time to get better.
oooh! the second one that says "animated" is awesome, I love the lines, swirls, and bird effect! great job <3
Thanks for the critiques =3
Requests over at BCL. I tried to do the Resident Evil one in the style the girl likes...so meh. The one I personally like is the Alice [Rozen Maiden] siggy. The avi not so much...but thats the image she wanted for it =/
and they all seem to like 450x150 sigs...
Ooooh!! It's Barasui!! <333
The writing in the Rozen Maiden one is a bit hard for me to see. But other than that, I likes.
And this is waaaaay late, but I LOVE the 3rd sig in your 2nd post. It's the Kagamine twins, right?
Whoo, I love both of the sigs in post #19!! The second one is smexy...^^
Most definitely awesome the way you redrew the left side of the guy's shirt and then went to the body - definitely one of my most favorites of yours!
The first one is also nice - I like the background and the blending in with the main image. Nice colors and sharpness, and I like the jaggedness of the angles. Also nice job on the upside-down text. Great sigs!
Ok, so Im gonna try to do a series of cool signatures to break me out of the habit of using warm colors.
The first of the series:
